This morning I awoke for the first time without the drowsy blehs or migraines. This allowed me to continue typing chapter eight of Down Jersey Driveshaft and figure out where I want it to go. I thought I’d take this time to look over the changes this past week in order to look ahead.
The major notice occurred yesterday. I now sell my eBook of An Unsubstantiated Chamber on draft2digital.com for $2. Last night, the price of my eBook on Kindle automatically dropped from $2.99 to $2. Curious, but at least things are the same across the board. Now to figure out a better way to market. Reading books on the subject helps, but I’m convinced it’s the glut in the market, not your book itself, that makes selling so abominable. Eager’s book Sell Your Book Like Wildfire mainly focused on nonfiction, but I have taken his fiction book advice. The results? Nothing yet. I guess those books are better sellers than any other genre, yet we still struggle.
I am taking time at work and home to read my stack of research books. My how crooked the times have been! I don’t trust politicians, and books like Nixonland only confirm my distrust of governments. Startling are the lies, slanderings of both parties and how they do things. Even more pitiful is the public aware of a good deal of it and doing next to nothing about it. Too busy consuming like Coneheads I guess. Giving me lots of names to use for my atompunk novel.
My cyberpunk tale is in the hands of a beta reader. Since I haven’t heard back from him, I assume my story killed him. Need to be more careful…and flee the country.
I have made it past the difficult scene in Book Two, and now breathe easier. This puts me on schedule to twice edit later and release the book by December to January. Perfect. Now with more time I can plan out short stories, media, etc.
That’s the gist of it. Off to work now. More reading more planning.
Know your alternate history!
